To summarize the average size of women by generation (yes, 20 years is *not* a generation these days - according to feminist ranters who screech that the sexual prime of a woman is in her late 30's and early-to-mid 40's, and that mandatory-IVF is the "natural" means of procreation):
2000: No actual stats (though Heartiste's comment of "nuke the Jabba from orbit" is indicative)
So I looked at WebMD for this gem (article was published 2010):
Today, the average American woman is 5’4″, has a waist size of 34-35 inches and weighs between 140-150 lbs, with a dress size of 12-14.
Fifty years ago, the average woman was 5’3-4″ with a waist size of approximately 24-25″, she weighed about 120 lbs and wore a size 8.So to translate:
1960 with 34-24-35 measurements
2010 with xx-34-xx measurements
That's a staggering 10-inch waistline explosion in 50 years time. Actually, much less time - 30 years - because in 1980 the average waistline was still 24-inches. To "push" all the other statistics into line, if the woman was hourglass-shaped:
Except that with that much fat, you don't get an hourglass figure. You get something that looks like the old Venus statues:
And it only looks vaguely female because of the bra forcing it into shape. Never mind the drooping flabs and the stretchy-pants everywhere else.
Fatties (and feminists) screamed from their souls.
Real Men wept.
